Campagnolo - A culture with its' own language, customs and beliefs. Some call it a cult. Founded by high priest of bike mecanics, Tullio Campagnolo. Followers are fanatical about beauty and function. They don't care about money or earthly possessions, as long as they can ride Campagnolo groupsets. The only other cult they have any respect for is that of Colnago.
